creative destruction

|
Here's an example of how fun it is when a creative sense of humor is combined with a healthy disrespect for The Law:
...students duplicate the license plates by printing plate numbers on glossy photo paper, using fonts from certain websites that "mimic" those on Maryland license plates. They tape the duplicate plate over the existing plate on the back of their car and purposefully speed through a speed camera, the parent said. The victim then receives a citation in the mail days later.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more of that kind of thing going around in the next decade, as the suits and crusaders in gov'ment decide to automate.

UPDATE: Here's another one from down under.

Ahhhh... the ironic vagaries of technology...

Multi-million dollar stings brought down by adolescent boredom and duct tape...

Gotta watch it with these electronic computer gizmo thingies - makin' us lazy...

Ex: How many of your friends / family members / therapists can you phone from memory?
